Herford, 26 February 2018 - The District Court of Bad Oeynhausen by resolution of 22 February 2018, which was received by Bitcoin Group SE today, has approved the proposal of the Board of Directors of the Company and appointed Mr. Alexander Müller as a new member of the Board of Directors of Bitcoin Group SE.

He is also a member of the Board of Directors of Nassauische Sparkasse Wiesbaden.
